After an exciting game against the Legion of Bananas, we came out victorious.
It was a back-and-forth game: GRCFC took the early lead 3 – 1 but the Legion of Bananas came back to tie the game late in the 2nd half. Then we scored the winning goal with 2 minutes left in the game. What a way to finish!
The Final was 5 – 4. Saimon Woldu (#11) scored 3 goals, including the winner, for a hat trick! The other 2 goals were scored by Bonus Inkhaw (#21) and Kazu Akata (#8). The win was a total team effort, with everyone working hard to improve from the first week. Our defense stayed committed and did a great job stopping the ball and protecting their goal.
Our match was selected as “Match of the Week” for the Starfire Outdoor 8v8 league, so there will be a video posted to their website in the near future. Once it is posted, we will feature it on the blog. As the winning team, we had a Man of the Match…Saimon! You’ll get to see his interview soon.
